The NABERS Energy rating is based on the operational and quantitative data for Digital Realty’s Erskine Park data centre, with more stars indicating better performance and environmental outcomes, and providing an indication of the operational energy efficiency of data centres in Australia.
Digital Realty says Sydney is positioned to become a “prominent enterprise data powerhouse” and is projected to generate the fourth-fastest growth in the intensity of data gravity by 2024, according to its Data Gravity Index - “meaning that it is essential that data centre infrastructure delivers industry-leading energy and resource efficiency”.
“Data centers are the bedrock of the digital economy. Ensuring their sustainable operations is a responsibility we take seriously,” said Rod Glover, Head of Operations Australia at Digital Realty.
“Digital Realty is committed to continuous improvement, implementing best practices in sustainability, and enabling a new era of connected global data communities.”
Late last year, as reported by iTWire, Digital Realty said it was expanding its presence in Australia, including the acquisition of 16.2 hectares in Western Sydney for constructing additional data centres.
